Well I live in India and naturally don’t have such luxuries of having such coverage in India. Hence, I’ve to adopt to illegal ways of catching up, whether it is MotoGP and FR 3.5 on BT or WEC on Motors TV or F1 on Sky.
Senna Week is a good concept by SkySports F1 and they have packed in the programs fairly well.
The Last Team Mate:
Was good in my opinion. It was interesting to know Damon’s side of the story as well as David’s (not a lot unfortunately) and they gave it a better touch by visiting Imola and walking on the track and even discuss Ruben’s accident. The coverage of the whole San Marino ’94 weekend was pretty good. You can almost feel the heaviness around that track and it immersed me into it. For a while, I couldn’t stop thinking about Senna.
Frankly, for me it was a let down. I’d lots of expectations from that. A few points that I didn’t like,
1. Simon Lazenby as a host was a strict no-no. It was evident that he really hasn’t followed the sport much and seemed to have studied Senna for this show. Also the way he kept on jumping from one Senna story to another without a proper rhythm wasn’t pleasing. It was as if like in the end, the viewer could hardly connect to dots from that one hour show.
2. With some well renowned guests, I was expecting some more interesting stories to come out of the discussion in regards to Senna – Prost or Senna – Balestre and other great and some controversial moments. Instead the show was largely dominated by their opinions on Senna which didn’t really make it that interesting. I almost disconnected myself mentally after about 25 mins. Partly I can blame the host for not setting up a rhythm nor asking interesting questions but it turned disappointing for me.
Now, I am definitely looking forward to Ted’s Notebook tonight and Ron Dennis on Senna as I feel that both these men will have a lot more interesting things to talk about.
Roland’s Special and the F1 Show – Senna Special, I really don’t have much of an expectation as generally The F1 Show is more of decorations and less on content.23rd April 2014, 10:29 at 10:29 am #257978
Nice but Valtteri seemed in a hurry. I like the concept but sometimes Rosanna just sticks the mic into the driver’s face and a bit pushy. Mark Webber seemed soooo disinterested.
Actually, you must watch Sutil’s artwork. Detailed and very well made.14th April 2014, 13:31 at 1:31 pm #25689114th April 2014, 11:42 at 11:42 am #256875
We really have been seeing a breakdown of Ferrari in recent years. The situation at Marenello is worrying for them looking at how the car has been over the last half-a-decade22nd March 2014, 19:58 at 7:58 pm #253355
It’s a very personal opinion but I believe that the death of Senna in such a tragic fashion had more of an emotional impact on the fans as well as the world who took notice of this genius. Schumacher, Vettel, Alonso can also be termed as greats but the difference is that they’re all still alive so people are more divided amongst fanatics and haters (a bit impolite but true)21st March 2014, 20:03 at 8:03 pm #253422
Which is sad but….21st March 2014, 9:21 at 9:21 am #253359
Bingo! Faster than I thought. Maybe it was a really easy one I guess. Good job21st March 2014, 8:34 at 8:34 am #25335620th March 2014, 16:06 at 4:06 pm #253301

As everybody would recognise, mine is of Jorge Lorenzo. Firstly I admire him. Secondly, I admire the logo and lastly, it represents my character aptly (halo and devil’s horns)31st December 2013, 10:31 at 10:31 am #247724
The prospect of a full time F1 channel was a mouth watering prospect in itself but I really feel that BBC has more creative minds churning new creation and going in depth with analysis where as Sky seems to be stuck with more of skin and less of meat.
Ever since Sky F1 came into being, rarely their features have matched up to the level of BBC and this year’s review was no different. Firstly, they lifted the concept of meeting at Simon’s house which was made last year for BBC (2012) where they meet at EJ’s place. It always seems that they lift a few fundamental ideas from the BBC itself (the water ski at Monaco 2013 or the Sand Grand Prix or the Pit Stop Challenge)
Their review was truly painful to watch. Very hollow to say the least29th December 2013, 21:54 at 9:54 pm #247681
Going to sleep. Just praying that I don’t wake up to the worse news.31st October 2013, 7:15 at 7:15 am #230634
To Bottas: You’re coming to the end of your first season in Formula 1. Which has been the most toughest aspect of the sport for you to learn? Is it the tires or PR activities or something else?
To Vettel: Sebastian, after getting in the habit of winning races after races and titles after titles, do you think a driver’s psychology changes to the extent where he would find loosing even more difficult?
